'Night People', an Irish sci-fi horror feature written & directed by Gerard Lough about high-tech thieves in a haunted building, has commenced principal photography in Donegal.
The feature marks the feature debut of Mr Lough whose short film credits include an adaptation of Steven King’s ‘The Boogeyman' which was awarded 'Most Exciting Breakthrough' last year by British film website Horror Cult Films.

Crew members on ‘Night People’ include composer Cian Furlong; visual effects artist Paul Barrett; director of photography & editor Greg Rouladh; prop designer Johnny Murphy; and sound recordist Fatima Fleming.
Actors Michael Parle, Jack Dean Shepard and Claire Blennerhassett, who all previously collaborated by with Mr Lough, also return for his big screen debut.
Principal photography commenced in August and will continue on location in South West Donegal and other Irish locations until 2014.
Mr Lough’s other credits also include such short films as ‘Ninety Seconds’, 'The Stolen Wings', 'The Scanner', 'Deviant', 'A Long Term Effect', and 'Ulterior'.
